Gina contacted me in the spring about doing a mini session for their family to celebrate this season they find themselves in : happy and healthy after an intense year with a premature baby. We met up at Butlers Orchard and these sweet girls couldn’t have been better subjects for me… I hope these pictures convey the joy and love this family shares.

jeff & audrey have been some of my favorite clients over the years, ever since i shot their maternity session back in 2011. i photographed miss Isabel as a newborn, a family session in 2012, and then sweet henry joined the crew last year. i feel like i say it all the time, but it’s true : getting to document the joys and changes of a family over the years is a complete honor. thank you ingram family for trusting me with that privilege!

i photographed kelly & jimmy’s engagement session a few years ago. then a maternity session on a hot summer evening. and then baby james newborn session. i love getting to celebrate with a family through the years like that. it was fun meeting up for a mini session and seeing the active little guy James has grown up to be. sweet boy, you are loved.

the last time i photographed ellie & vickie they were tiny newborns. we met up in the buttercup field on mother’s day for a nine month mini session. some of my subjects were happier about the whole picture taking thing than others ;) what fun to see them grow.

ellie’s parents contacted me about a newborn shoot last year,  just before my wedding, and sadly, we were unable to coordinate our schedules. i was so happy they looked me up again for her one year shoot in June. we returned to my new favorite field, still covered in buttercups, and spent a wonderful morning together. i have a weakness for dimples and ellie’s are the b e s t! such a darling happy girl. i was grateful for the opportunity to document the one year milestone for this sweet family.

Connor is one of my first year clients, who I’ve had chance to photograph three times over the past 12 months. This session was definitely my favorite with him. He is the happiest little guy. I loved the simple color palette mom chose that blended so perfectly with the gorgeous late spring day we ended up with. Sweet boy – I feel so lucky to have been able to capture your first year! You are so very loved.

i’ve had the privilege of working with so many wonderful families this summer. many return clients, as well as some new… jessica contacted me wanting to capture this crazy busy season of life with 3 under 3, and i’m so happy we were able to meet up. we lucked out with a beautiful early summer evening and gorgeous golden light. to top it all off, i showed up to our location to find it a field of buttercup perfection. all the pieces just fell into place…

i considered it the highest compliment when Jessica emailed me after viewing their gallery saying “you got US!”

miss caroline’s session may go down in the books as the easiest ever. she slept like a dream on mom and dad’s bed, which just so happened to have the most wonderful window light. per mom’s request, this was a “no prop” session; and honestly, after seeing the beautiful simplicity of these images, I’m inclined to go without props more often. my newborn sessions are so much about the perfection of the details of these tiny little people. to keep it simple and make it all about them is just the aesthetic i strive to achieve with every sweet babe i work with. ryan + kendall – your girl is just exquisite. thank you for the opportunity.

after photographing nicole’s maternity session on the bay, i was excited to return when mister liam made his speedy entrance to the world. i’ve had the opportunity to work with lots of “fur babies” in addition to my newborns recently, and i have to say i’ve been quite lucky to have such well trained, sweet tempered pups to photograph. matt & nicole’s sweet boxers are definitely a big part of this family. i’m so glad we were able to include them in our session. welcome to the world, sweet baby liam. you are so very loved!
